Breckenridge Campout / ATV Ride (9/13 thru 9/15)

  • Sep 13, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Host: Pete and Susan O. are the hosts of this event.


Directions: From Hwy 9: Approximately 1 mile north of the "Round-About" on the north edge of Breckenridge is a stop light for TIGER ROAD (NOT Tiger Run)


1) Turn EAST on Tiger ROAD (aka Co Rd 6)


2) Follow Tiger Road, past the golf course - it will turn to dirt.

3) Start watching for CQR Signs. Approx 3 miles onto the dirt road, you will be making a LEFT turn on CR 354 (I think it’s the 2nd left and it is NOT marked). I’ll try to have a sign or banner there. Travel in on this about 1 mile, you should see a big CQR Banner.


4) Pick your own camp spot anywhere near enough to socialize as you wish.


GPS COORDINATES for the Camp Site:

39 deg 30'58.52" N

Camping: Camping is DRY with no facilities. There are Motels/Hotels in Breckenridge or Frisco and the closest gas is also in Breckenridge or Frisco.

Agenda: The rides will start around 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. and probably will take most of the day, so bring lunches, snacks, and drinks.

Ride: Trail Difficulty in this area ranges from Easy to Difficult. Helmets, over the ankle boots, gloves, long sleeves and pants need to be worn. Be prepared for all weather conditions.

Disclaimer: The rider assumes all responsibility to ride within their own capabilities on any of these trail rides. The trail rating guide system takes into consideration “typical” trail width of the ride, the steepness and the trail surface composition. These ratings are ONLY intended to be guides to make trail use easier and safer and to encourage you to assess your own capabilities before venturing out on any trail. Trail ratings are used to indicate the expertise needed to drive the trail under normal conditions but these conditions are subject to rapid change in Colorado (ie- weather, boulders, etc).

    Thanks Michelle, I ordered the plugs and insert tool from Amazon. The original plug I installed on Susan's tire is holding, but she had two more small punctures. I tried to use the extra plug Van gave me, but I had trouble installing it without damaging it (I guess I did not have 1/2 of CQR watching me!.. , so I think the insertion tool is necessary.

      By the way, it looks like these plugs are best for circular punctures. It temporarily held the sidewall slice in Susan's tire but it was flat this morning.

    It's sunny here today. More showers in the forecast but pretty nice. Hope you can all navigate the road closures and make it here.

    I will host a ride to radical hill, Webster pass and red cone pass on Saturday leaving at 9:30 am.

    Are these trails ok for a full size UTV?

    September 7, 2013

    • Pete & S.

      I don't recall any tight spots so you should be ok. But there are a few very rocky steep parts.

      September 9, 2013

    • Lucas S.

      Ok. Thanks for the reply. I have a full size Ranger and its limited due to 60" wide. I would love to take my daughter on this trip though.
